What could be more appropriate than visiting a much-talked about food market on a sunny Saturday in London…? There’s been much hype about this new addition to the foodie scene and no doubt it’ll only get more visitors as the news keeps spreading. I’m talking about London’s first weekly celebration of vegan foods: the Broadway Vegan Market.
Every Saturday between 10AM and 4PM in the grounds of London fields primary school is a little #vegan market. The weekly vegan market offers a really impressive variety of plant-based food ranging from junk food, to Thai and Indian curries, to jack-fruit stuffed burritos, to Vietnamese inspired salads, to handmade cashew cheeses, plant-based chocolates, donuts-about 20-varieties! scones, cream cakes and more…
I opted for the Korean BBQ Banh Mi baguette from Eat Chay Club, see picture below that I got from Instagram. Filled with BBQ mock chicken with loads of salads, coriander and sauce. It was heavenly and I am so cuffed I chose this option.
My comrades opted for:
- a BIG V LONDON burger which had a really good taste and included extras such as pickles, burger cheese and sauce
- a curry from The Spice Box which included three different curries and a slice of seaweed!
- a Mexican inspired jack-fruit burrito which I didn’t try but was assured was delicious and was described as “sweet and salty!”
I really wanted to try Dough Society London donuts, but they’d sold out by 1.30PM!! (I was informed more were on their way, but by then we’d made our way to Edgar’s and were enjoying a cocktail. Edgar’s on Broadway incidentally offer a vegan menu too. Veganism and vegan options are certainly on the rise.
Next time I visit, I will probably try the buckwheat pancakes as they also looked really tasty and healthy. And I will make sure I manage to bag at least one Dough society London before everyone else.
